Is Tuesday night a potential Stanley Cup Finals matchup when the Flames visit Tampa Bay? Both teams are in the #1 seed in their respective conferences and have gone 12-4-4 combined over their last 20 games. The Lightning are huge favorites due to their home ice advantage but Calgary is a very solid road team.
The Flames are in a tough spot on Tuesday. They need a win to snap a two game losing streak, but have to go to Amalie Arena to get it, where the Lightning are 21-5-1 on the season. Calgary is just 1-2-1 since the Winter break, but they should be jacked up for the battle of #1’s tonight.
Calgary does boast the #2 scoring offense in the league but it’s going to be on David Rittich to shut down the equally high powered Tampa Bay attack in this one. Rittich is 3-0-1 over his last five starts but on of those was a no decision where the goaltender allowed 2 goals on 6 shots to San Jose on February 7th.
Tampa Bay Lightning
Tampa Bay has better momentum heading into the matchup with the Flames. The Lightning have netted 10 goals the past two games in wins over Florida and Pittsburgh. TB had struggled a bit going 2-1-2 since the Winter break but they seem to have righted the ship a bit.
Does Tampa Bay’s #1 offense matching up with the Flames #2 unit mean a game that goes ‘over’ 6.5 goals? TB definitely has the capabilities to shut down the Calgary scoring attack with Andrei Vasilevskiy between the pipes. The Tampa Bay goaltender has started 5 games since the break with mixed reactions allowing 4, 0, 2, 1, and 4 goals.
